2006 Per Bacco Cellars Arroyo Grande Valley Pinot Noir
13.5% alc., $28. Sourced from Laetitia Vineyard. Aged 12 months in 50% new French oak. Available on the website. · The nose draws you in with scents of bright black cherries and brioche. A mid-weight wine with cherry cola flavors and a deft touch of toasty oak. The dry tannins are caressing and the acidity is in step with the fruit. Reviewed April 18, 2009 ARTICLE »
